Live from the San Francisco Opera, 1989
From one of the world’s most extensive catalogues of audio-visual productions, Arthaus Musik again has chosen 10 exemplary recordings from the greatest opera houses. This third journey through the world of opera features classics
by Mozart, Gluck, Weber, Puccini and Rossini, as well as Janáček’s, Berg’s and Poulenc’s more recent operatic strokes of genius, performed by singers like Peter Schreier, Ileana Cotrubaș, Franz Grundheber, Edita Gruberová, Peter Seiffert, Inga Nielsen, Marilyn Horne or Malin Hartelius; and last but not least virtuously conducted by international stars like Claudio Abbado, Riccardo Muti, Fabio Biondi, Sir Charles Mackerras or Nikolaus Harnoncourt. Legendary Performances impressively demonstrate how diverse, imposing, and especially how alluring and delightful the world of opera is.
